When cultures collide: new opera links 1066 with modern-day themes of invasion and loss

Themes of invasion, loss and the redeeming power of human goodness are explored in PUSH, a powerful new opera which has its world premiere this weekend, Saturday 1 October, at the De La Warr Pavilion. Cultures collided when William conquered England, and they still do today as people move around, whether displaced by war and poverty or enjoying their freedom to roam as EU citizens.
